Trade deadline...

Postby Bricklayer » Thu Aug 11, 2005 7:57 pm

When YAHOO! says that the deadline to complete trades is Aug 14th, they mean thats the cutoff for accepting trades, right?

That is correct.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

It say's 'All trades must be processed by Aug 14th'. I guess that means that if the trade hasn't gone through by the 14th, it isn't gonna happen. Just a guess, I used my head and got all my deals done by the end of last week...... ;-D

You may be right, mine now says "The deadline to complete trades in this league WAS Sunday, Aug 14." Although there is still a trade pending and I proposed another this morning without any trouble...

Hmmm, not sure then. Offer them anyway, but don't get your hopes up.

I'm suprised someone with more Yahoo experience hasn't commented. Where are the "Veterans" when you need them? :-]

This happened last year. Basically it is the trading deadline tonight which is why it says was and the actual deadline is 3 AM Eastern since the deadline is midnight Pacific.
